Hyperparathyroidism Treatment

Last Modified on Apr 09, 2015

What Is Hyperparathyroidism?

Hyperparathyroidism is a condition that results as an excess of parathyroid hormone is present in the bloodstream. This excess hormone arises due to the overactivity of one of the body’s four parathyroid glands. Located in the neck, the parathyroid glands generally have an oval shape and are similar in size to a grain of rice. The parathyroid glands are responsible for producing the parathyroid hormone, which regulates the amount of calcium in the bloodstream and tissues that rely on calcium for effective functioning.

Most often hyperparathyroidism is diagnosed prior to the development of symptoms. Typically when symptoms of hyperparathyroidism do occur, the symptoms presented are the result of damage or dysfunction in the affected organs and tissues. Symptoms of hyperparathyroidism range in severity but commonly include fragile bones, kidney stones, excessive urination, abdominal pain, weakness, fatigue, depression, forgetfulness, bone and joint pain, frequent illness and gastrointestinal issues.

The underlying cause of hyperparathyroidism is the overproduction of parathyroid hormone. The parathyroid gland maintains the proper level of calcium and phosphorus in the body by secreting different amounts of the parathyroid hormone depending on need. If this production and release is disrupted hyperparathyroidism is often the result. Hyperparathyroidism is generally considered the result of an issue with the gland itself or the result of a comorbid disease that affects the gland’s function.

Natural Hyperparathyroidism Remedies

While the specific treatments for hyperparathyroidism depend on the specific cause of the condition, several natural remedies serve as treatments for both types of hyperparathyroidism. Lugol’s solution, vitamin C, sodium ascorbate and baking soda are all important supplements for leveling the body’s pH and regulating the amount of hormones produced. Additional treatment components include regulating the amount of calcium and vitamin D in the diet, drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly, not smoking and avoiding calcium-raising drugs.

Boron   0  0   

Posted by James (Florida, US) on 08/27/2014

I suggest anyone who has a parathyroid problem to look into " boron parathyroid ". Boron controls the parathyroids. The highest concentration of boron in the whole body is in the parathyroids, and without it you will have hyperparathyroid. Do a simple google search of " boron parathyroid ". Extensive information not told to you by ENT doctors. Instead they want to cut them out. Real smart! Also vitamin D3 plays a part in parathyroid, as well as magnesium. And lastly iodine is needed for the thyroid to produce calcitonin. Calcitonin controls blood calcium cells. Look into this aswell as hypothyroid is another cause for elevated blood calcium. Oh and dehydration if youre not getting enough real salt can raise serum calcium. Give these a shot but boron is number one! Its a mineral!

It's well established in the medical literature that the highest concentration of boron in the human body is within the parathyroid gland. Deficiency of this mineral will cause over production of pth causing hypercalcemia. If you have hypercalcemia with normal pth chances are something is causing bone breakdown in your body. This is why being bedridden is a cause of hypercalcemia. The bones break down from not being used, calcium is released into the blood and your body can only rid of it so fast so it builds up causing hypercalcemia. Other things can cause bone breakdown as well, usually deficiency of some sort. If you guys have hypercalcemia, get your pth checked. 24 hour urine isn't necessary as the body is of course going to dump as much of this calcium as it can through your urine, and try to recycle some of it back into bone. This test just states the obvious. You want scans done(checking for an adenoma although not always accurate), and pth testing. Its a tough thing to figure out as they make you wait and suffer while they try to figure out whats going your problem. If the tests comes back not showing anything, welp, oh well for you. Sorry. That's how it goes, and its sickening. My advice, the most important things for this are of course boron, magnesium, Vitamin D3 ( HAVE THIS CHECKED AS WELL, THIS CAN CAUSE THIS HYPERTHYROIDISM ), and lastly your BONE HEALTH. If you're deficient in something required for bone integrity and you don't have it what do you think is gonna happen? Bone breakdown, rapidly. Where does this calcium go? The blood. Your body can only get rid of so much so fast. It essentially get backed up causing blood levels to rise. Usually this bone breakdown is a vitamin c deficiency as it creates the collagen needed for bone structure, as well as fatty acid deficiency (PARENT OMEGA 3 -ALA). I hope I helped in some way. Good luck ladies n gents.
